Vital mushrooms provide a valuable contribution in the prevention and therapy of hypertension

Hypertension is considered one of the greatest health problems of the modern age. In the United Kingdom alone, according to data from the NHS, about 12,5 million people - almost every fourth - are affected. The great danger: Although hypertension can cause further serious diseases, many sufferers do not suspect their hypertension. They feel well and have little discomfort at first. This is also the reason that too high values are often recognized too late.

Therefore, it is good to know that there are natural methods which are very helpful and sustainable against hypertension. There are, for example, particular medicinal mushrooms – also called vitality mushrooms – which have proven to be effective in the prevention and treatment of hypertension. This is shown by experiences from naturopathy and long term observational studies of MykoTroph Institute, one of the most renowned Institutes for Medicinal Mushrooms in Europe.

Serious consequences

Hypertension is the leading risk factor for cardiovascular diseases like arteriosclerosis, heart attack or stroke. Moreover, further organ damages could be the consequence of hypertension. This includes retinal damages or renal problems up to renal failure. Permanently increased levels of blood pressure are also seen as a risk factor for dementia (Alzheimer’s disease).

Change your lifestyle

Still, all the underlying causes of hypertension could not be explained by medicinal research, but experts agree that a healthy lifestyle helps against hypertension. In any case, there must be physical activity and weight loss. Alcoholic beverages should be avoided and stress needs to be reduced. Particularly important is a well-balanced diet with a lot of fresh fruits, mushrooms and vegetables. Natural remedies like medicinal mushrooms can also counteract increased levels of blood pressure.

Medicinal mushrooms support the natural regulation of blood pressure

Vitality mushrooms have proven to be effective in the prevention and treatment of hypertension. As basics, medicinal mushrooms Reishi and Auricularia are recommended. Because of its ingredient adenosine, Auricularia highly contributes to the improvement of the blood’s fluidity and has vasodilating properties. It thereby promotes a good blood circulation and contributes naturally to a reduction of blood pressure and lowers the risk of thrombosis. Reishi supports the oxygen saturation of the blood which has positive effects on the cardiac activity. Furthermore, it reduces inflammatory processes and can balance vegetative-related fluctuations of the blood pressure. Both mushrooms, Auricularia and Reishi, also have cholesterol lowering effects.

Further support

Additionally, the intake of medicinal mushrooms Maitake, Shiitake and Pleurotus has proven to be advantageous. Maitake enables an improved metabolization of blood lipids, Shiitake has positive effects on the increase of “good” HDL-cholesterol and Pleurotus helps to reduce an increased homocysteine value.
All these factors of medicinal mushrooms have a positive effect on the endogenous regulation of the blood pressure. They help that increased values can be reduced naturally until they reach a healthy level.


Medicinal mushrooms are available as mushroom powder capsules. MykoTroph Institute advises to take great care in the selection. The so-called "mushroom powder made from the whole mushroom" has proven its effectiveness. Only here are all the active ingredients of the medicinal and vitality mushrooms contained. Another quality feature is the cultivation of mushrooms in Germany in organic quality. Please consult your therapist. Further information on Mycotherapy can be found on or via +49 6047 988530
